NRC South Report - April 2011
On the legal front, there are some important developments in April. While the Eldorado and Stanislaus suits are still working through the various stages of legal arguments, the WEMO, and SoCal Roadless actions are semi-settled.
The WEMO (Western Mojave) area is the largest BLM planning area in the desert region. And, that area is a high concentration of motorized recreation opportunity. Under the settlement, BLM is required to validate their route inventory and sign routes that are open for motorized access. And, BLM is required to go back to the judge with a progress report this summer.
